Brake Lines

All of the brake lines were fabricated and installed. I used Aeroquip hose for the flexible portions around the rudder/brake pedals, and then -3 hard tubing from the canard bulkhead all the way back through the keel to the landing gear bulkhead. Exiting the keel at the whale tail, the two tubes make a bend outward and upwards, passing through the landing gear bulkhead on either side of the MLG pulleys. Elbow bulkhead connectors then make the transition to the flexible hose that continues down the gear legs to the brake assemblies on the wheels.
